Autohome Dachzelt - Roberto Maschietto Roof Top Tents

Roberto Maschietto

“I’m an off-road enthusiast, organizer of Land Rover events at the top of the Italian scene and not least in love with the trip that often took me away from the common routes of tourism. Today for my first solo tour of the world I chose an Autohome roof tent, Columbus Variant model, to install on my Defender 110.
I started with an old ’80s Maggiolina tent, renovated several times but still a very good outdoor companion today.
My love to enjoy the sight, sounds and perfumes, that waking up every day in a new place gives me, finds the right combination with Autohome. Thanks to which I chose to pursue a long-suffering dream.”

Radek and Marta Solcovi – Czech Offroadguide and Offroad Expeditions in the world.
On our travels we cannot imagine sleeping differently than in the Maggiolina roof tent. For more than 20 years we have been carrying our home on our own roof during our trips. It gives us safety and home in rain, wind and winter. We can always count on him.

Autohome Dachzelt - Gabriele Medioli Roof Top Tents

Gabriele Medioli

“Gabriele Medioli – Fireman
Over the years I was lucky enough to try different Autohome roof tents, and each of them always exalted a specific feature, thus standing out from the others, showing that each model has its own uniqueness.
Today the adventure companion in my great passion for the outdoors, proving reliable and safe even in the most adverse weather conditions, is a fantastic AIRTOP 360°, which I am fully satisfied with. AIRTOP is so practical without affecting the incomparable comfort of this tent which, with its 360° panoramic view, I like to call my “Globetrotter Penthouse”.
By the sea or in the high mountains, whether it is a real holiday or a simple trip out of town, Autohome makes it unforgettable. THANKS GUYS!!!”

Autohome Dachzelt - Benji Davenport Roof Top Tents

Benjy Davenport

I have done extensive travels around the world with my Defender 110. The best decision I made was moving into a Autohome Airtop. This tent made life on the road so much easier, I can keep all my bedding inside the tent while traveling so when I set up camp all my bedding is exactly where I need it. The solid construction with quality parts made this a very tough and extremely comfortable tent indeed. I have used other tents over the years before I changed to Autohome, now Autohome is the only rooftop tent I trust for quality, comfort and durability.

“When we participate in multiple day Heavy Duty Throphy Raids, exhaustion at the end of the day is unavoidable so having a tent that is ready for sleeping withing a minute is incredibly helpful.

Autohome Dachzelt - Roof Top Tents testimonial

Vanni Oddera

“Many unhappy people do not take the initiative to change their situation, because they are influenced by a sense of security, conformism and conservatism. This seems to ensure peace of mind, actually there is nothing such devastating for an adventurous soul as a secure future. The real core of the vital spirit is the passion for adventure. The joy of living rises from new experiences, and so there is no greater joy than having a constantly changing horizon, of being every day under new and different sky… That’s why my tent is my home.”

Autohome Dachzelt - Roof Top Tents testimonial

“This Holy Mountain is really magic and inspires awe. Aborigines call it Uluru. Tonight, we camp here and tomorrow we are going to leave early, at nightfall.

The Tester – Chris Simons

Gran Bretagna

“The strong subject of these tents is the original idea: in comparison with 1958, now both the materials and the finishing touch have achieved a very high quality level, but what makes difference was and is still the original revolutionary concept. To sum up, it is really difficult to find defects in Autohome tents, also considering the wide range as well as the different solutions and accessories this line consists of”

Valery Fontaine

Anatolia (Turchia)

“Since a lot of years, Maggiolina and Columbus are our “fellow travellers”: the safety we have felt while sleeping raised from the ground was invaluable. These tents are real sleeping rooms, their inner part is very comfortable and the lateral pockets are remarkably functional. Due to their inner height, it is very easy to enter the sleeping bag and change. Even in the ends of the earth, people can feel at home” 

Autohome Dachzelt - Roof Top Tents testimonial

Paul Farrel


“ertical lifting tents, such as Maggiolina or Columbus, are technical masterpieces; instantaneous opening and strength of the hooks allow remarkable safety conditions to be achieved. But when I am on business, I shall often get up on to the car roof to get the best view and for this reason I prefer Overland tent. When the latter is closed (or open) I can freely manoeuvre, since I have two positioning possibilities, so, I can say that this tent has really functional properties.”

“Dunes high like mountains during the day and a 5 stars roof at night. I am not jealous of my Maggiolina if most of the times she is the star. On the contrary, I am proud of knowing that the pictures taken already obtained a honour place. On the other hand, the same pictures have also been hung on the walls of my home… When you go to the ends of the earth you never know what to expect. For this reason, it is better to be properly equipped.”

Tour Leader

Car driver, mechanic, rescuer … Adventure is my job! I frequently travel around North Africa, Europe and America. Both care for details and customer’s needs are my strong subject, in order to allow everybody to make their dreams come true by travelling. Hereby, I thank Autohome for this space and especially for their wonderful products making every day full of adventure!

I would like to thank everybody. I have spent memorable nights with Maggiolina and who knows how many more will follow. I use Maggiolina in the Arctic Circle up to the Tropic of Cancer. This travelling system makes me feel proud of owning the original product and my thoughts are for its inventors and for anyone who has been able to renew and spread Autohome all over the world.

From Ferrara to Ulan Bator looking for excitement: 23,000 kilometres and 45 days through Mittelasia to make a documentary film. With Maggiolina Safari we should neither inflate mattresses nor to fix tent pegs: some crank turns and …. bed is ready! Maggiolina: a practical and comfortable tent!! Maggiolina will always be with us, during our journeys! THANK YOU AUTOHOME
